  • Yeah, owning a MAME cab only leads to owning real ones. MAME just isn't good enough. It's a gateway drug.

Some friends took us to see Steve 'N' Seagulls last night.  I had never heard of them before.  They are a bluegrass band from Finland that plays 80's and 90's metal.  A great time was had by all.



You just sent me down the YouTube rabbit hole with that one. Here's some Iron Maiden:

Ha! I went down the same rabbit hole when we got back from the concert.   

I was also just listening to Iron Maiden at my desk.   :cheers:

Then the Pixies and Weezer last month.

Hard Rock as I've seen. They are good. Look straight out of the South....or what has been portrayed of the deep South.

Yeah they are great.  I'd see them again if they come back this way.

My kids were into them but we never got around to seeing them for some reason.  They seem like they would be a great live show.

In case anyone thought I was being cheeky about in-ear-monitors, most big-name bands use them instead of a 'backline' of speaker stacks (and amplifiers). IEM systems are inexpensive enough many people are using them.

Went to see William Elliot Whitmore and Murder by Death the other night.  It was a great show, I'm a big fan Whitmore and have seen him several times, but knew nothing about Murder by Death going in.   I left being a big fan of Murder by Death, they have a cool vibe and a great cello player!

Such a poor choice for a band name given the style of music they play.

Ohh, I think not.....


"Murder by Death is a 1976 American satirical mystery comedy film with a cast featuring Eileen Brennan, Truman Capote, James Coco, Peter Falk, Alec Guinness, Elsa Lanchester, David Niven, Peter Sellers, Maggie Smith, Nancy Walker, and Estelle Winwood, written by Neil Simon and directed by Robert Moore."

"Murder by Death is an American...indie rock band from Bloomington, Indiana. Their name is derived from the 1976 Robert Moore film of the same name."

They sound cooky like the movie seems....

I was wondering if their name was based on the movie (which I wouldn't call the "Robert Moore film" as much as the "Neil Simon film" - it would be nothing without his outstanding writing.)

I actually think a trend in the next few years will be a massive shift in the way we get exposed to music, with people sick of how "popular" music is fed to them through radio and multimedia and go out and find it themselves through internet searching and finding out more about their local music scene.  People aren't going to be trading tapes any more because of changing times, but the digital equivalent will become more prominent the more people get fed up or frustrated with the current system. I already see it emerging as "cool" to dislike the radio music and many are turning to digital jukeboxes that scan their taste in music and intelligently suggest other bands and artists they may like. I hope the live music industry goes back to more local live music as it was in the 70s and 80s.

Definitely, dude. I've been to concerts now where 90% of the crowd discovered the band on Spotify. Or they're 20 and went down a pandora  rabbit hole and ended up amongst old people like me seeing some early 80s band.

This is a great point.  I've found several "new" artists via Pandora.  This has lead to concert and CD purchases that would not have happened otherwise.

The rabbit hole is a big one for me.
I probably only listen to FM radio a few times a year and it's a station that plays 90's alternative and weird folky stuff.
I have no idea what top 40 radio sounds like.  If it weren't for the stupid tabloid blurbs on the internet, I wouldn't have any idea who those artists are.

I've been a Rhapsody (now rebranded as Napster) subscriber for almost a decade.
Whenever I hear about a national touring band playing nearby, I give them a listen on Napster.
If I like them, I click on the similar artists tab and give those a listen, then the similar artists on those artist pages.
A few of the bands I'd like to see live disbanded years ago.  :lol  :'(

I also end up giving more things a chance because I don't have to financially invest in their album to listen to it.

Was invited to see Nels Cline a few weeks ago (wasn't familiar with his music). 
Ran into a guy I knew there who said most people were there to see the keyboardist, who I'd also never heard of.
Next thing you know I'm listening to acid jazz. (Medeski, Martin, & Wood)

Going to see Pavlo Simtikidis tomorrow and John 5 on Sunday.
Hopefully John 5 gets me out of this weird easy listening vibe I've had going on for the past few weeks.

If I weren't tied to a desk, I'd stop listening to podcasts altogether.

I'd enjoy the music I listen to more if I weren't working while listening to it.

I miss listening to podcasts and audiobooks. When I joined here, I worked at a job where I didn't have to really interact with anyone, just processed thousands of scanned documents per day. Now I work for the state and have clients (so walk-ins, phone calls, emails, etc).

Sounds a lot like me.  I am ALWAYS on the lookout for new music and thanks to Spotify I've found a ton of it over the last few years.  I find a band I like and then go to the "Fans Also Like" tab and start listening to those bands.  I can't get enough.  Even if 9/10 aren't albums or bands I will go back to regularly, it is worth it for the 1/10 that I end up loving.  I just discovered Turnover a few months ago and I can't get enough of their 2 latest albums.  Last year it was The War On Drugs.  So many bands and so little time.

In concert news, I may be continuing my pop punk showgoing next summer... Twenty-One Pilots will be in NJ in June and my daughter wants to go soooooo.....

My son brought me to see 311 at Red Rocks in Colorado. This was last April, also playing was Method Man, Redman and Prof.


First time seeing 311, love their music and the show was great. They are all business when playing, I mean it sounds dang near like the studio version.

As a lifelong fan of Jeff Lynne and ELO I'm extremely pumped that we have tickets for their tour this summer.  They toured last year and I completely missed out on it.  Here is the list of dates in case anyone else is interested.
